Extending the bounds of race and racism: Indigenous women and the persistence of the Black - White paradigm of race

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

9 Scopus citations


In this article, I illustrate how the dominant Black - White binary paradigm of race in the United States situates Indigenous women as either racialized Others or White Others in the context of a predominantly White university. Race and racism are thus salient in the lives of Indigenous students in multiple and complex ways - ways which are rarely elaborated upon in the current research literature.
